Happy Holidays to everyone, especially to my Team Voice friends. It has been such a wonderful blessing to have spent the year with all of you, mostly virtually!
Your encouragement, your friendship, your comedy, your craziness, your imagination, your ups, your downs and your inspiration has been a wonderful part of my life this year. I can't wait to see you all in a few weeks.
Honestly, at this point, the race is pretty secondary to what I've experienced this year. Sticking with this training commitment has been a monumental accomplishment in my life, and has proven to me that I really can stick with something and finish it. And of course, I really -- really -- never could have gotten through this on my own.
YOU have been the best present I've ever received since my Barbie dollhouse when I was eight, and I THANK YOU with all my heart!
